Domaine Pierre Guillemot 'Le Mont et Forêt' Hautes Côtes de Beaune Blanc 2020
It’s hard to imagine an established Burgundian domaine without a pure Chardonnay in its lineup, but the Guillemot family of Savigny-lès-Beaune never bottled such a wine—until now! Unlike their Savigny blanc, which prominently features Pinot Blanc, this brand new cuvée from the Hautes Côtes de Beaune is composed solely of the region’s principal white grape. Their Chardonnay is planted in a cool site in stony soils above the Côte de Beaune, and displays a lovely balance of creaminess and toasted hazelnut with precision and minerality from its terroir. A great addition to the Guillemots’ already steady lineup of Burgundies, this white can be uncorked today for its youthful charm.
